They look like something Darth Vader would inhale from, but these accessories aren’t just for show. Fashioned by Iceland-based designer Sruli Recht, the double-walled Norlan Whisky Glass ($48* for two) marries the classic tumbler with the nosing glass, Norlan co-founder Shane Bahng once told The Whiskey Wash. “He wanted to create a standing wave effect in the glass when you swirl it so as to add air into the water for massive oxidation,” Bahng said of its creator’s attempt to bring whiskey glassware into the modern world.
Now Recht is back with the equally forward-looking Drave Water Pipette & Carafe, made from aluminum and lead-free crystal, respectively. Both can be yours for a mere $350, and the pipette is $65. The drill: after using the pipette to draw water from the carafe, add it to whiskey drop by drop to tease out flavors and aromas. Take your time.
